Cymbeline (Oxford Shakespeare Series) 1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
FCT More than 1 year ago
This is probably the worst edition of Cymbeline ever printed.  Acts III and IV are omitted, so that the plot makes very little sense.  The back cover mentions both the homoerotic aspect of the play and the beautiful lyric "Fear no more the heat o'the sun," but the reader can find neither without Acts III and IV, where they appear.  This edition has no line numbers or textual notes.  It is graphically appealing, but lacking in substance.  I hope Barnes & Noble will very carefully vet future books published by Watersgreen House.
